Cops get a bad reputation. They are often seen as a necessary evil rather than a supremely needed aspect of a properly functioning government. They are often looked at with disdain at the least and out and out hostility at the worst. And when one of them breaks bad, it seems like the entire force is to blame. But let’s keep it individualized. Naming every police officer as a crook, on the take, or vicious in some way is a severe and subjective viewpoint. One former law enforcement officer who should receive blame is Pete Williston. He was convicted of raping his stepdaughter starting when she was only 14 and he was in his late 30’s and early 40’s. This heinous crime was committed by one evil cop, not every policeman on the beat. What makes this whole affair even worse is that the now 50-year-old Williston is seeking house arrest due to the courts being closed in the wake of COVID-19. That’s right. This ex-cop, criminal rapist wants to taste a bit of liberty because of the recent outbreak.
Just when you think that the COVID-19 virus would overshadow every other news item, it once again became part of another story. Disgraced film producer Harvey Weinstein contracted the novel coronavirus while imprisoned. Will the world weep? With this creep still breathing, will anyone shed a tear or rush to his aid besides medical workers? Weinstein’s crimes remain some of the most vicious in Hollywood history. Make that American history. His 23-year sentence may still be too light for his evil actions. Now, with the coronavirus, maybe the story about how he abused all of those women will come to an even brighter spotlight.
On the night of October 1, 2017 a tragedy happened. Stephen Paddock has killed 58 people and wounded 515. The panic that he created increased that number to 851. Paddock fired a total of 1100 rounds of ammunition from his suite on the 32 floor of the Mandalay hotel. The shooting occurred between 10:00 and 10:15 P.M. PDT. This is the deadliest mass shooting committed by an individual in the history of the United States of America.
I collected the boy from his friends house, after school, and popped into the Sainsbury’s local supermarket, which after the panic buying, looked as if it had been pillaged by the Viking’s. I got home and drove around for a parking space, of which there were none. In one of the nearby streets, which were awash with spaces, there is an hour restriction between 7 - 8 pm, and as it was 7.30 pm and we were in the middle of a worldwide pandemic, I tried my luck and my old van came to a rest, and we wearily got out and headed indoors, to hear the Lockdown Latest from Boris.
Fraud and receiving information are two different entities. The former relates to an actual crime where the violation of rights is involved. Information from a friend is just data supplied from a close associate that could benefit both parties. Seattle Seahawks linebacker Mychal Kendricks is facing time in prison and a multi-million dollar fine for his role in an insider trading scandal.
The madness continues. A man committed an armed robbery of two people and stole their car at gunpoint in Lincoln, Delaware. Where is the rationality? Where is the selfishness? If the suspect had thought through his actions and considered his own short-term and long-term self-interest, then he would’ve never decided to go against the letter of the law an morality.
A Dover, Delaware man has been charged with first degree murder of his child’s mother. A second look at that sentence may not hold enough information but it says a great deal. For a murder in the first degree, that could mean a minimum of twenty-five years in prison or life in Delaware. The irrationalism involved in the case is evident. Emotion before thought led this man to take this woman from her child and other children under her care.

This story is truly one of the craziest I’ve read in a long time. You’re introduced to a woman by the name of ‘ Tammi McCreary’, a mortgage broker who ends up falling in love with a con-artist at a party in 2008. Eric Perteet is the name of a man who tricks his soon to be wife Tammi into believing he’s a fully schooled, trained, ER doctor; a lie that only one true manipulator could pull off.
Clement “Smiley” Leach, Jr. aged 49, was asking for it. After escaping from prison based on a burglary conviction, this male once again felt the cold hand of justice after turning up in a diner popular with cops. Surveillance video indicated the police officers who descended upon Leach like a swarm of hornets. He must’ve wanted to get caught. In all of the places in all of the country and maybe the world, Leach decides to go to a po boy establishment that offers law enforcement a plentiful discount on their meals.
When a pleasant day at Mickey’s Toontown in Disneyland turned into a scene of utter chaos, it can be labeled as a frustration moment. As common as these moments continue to be, they rarely crop up at theme parks, especially ones geared at affording youngsters joy. A man named Avery Robinson is now set to serve six months based on his abusive actions. While no details exist as to why the brawl started, it actually took place in July of 2019. It’s just the conviction has finally passed down from the judge.
According to the Guardian, Atlanta, Georgia is the hub for the black LGBTQ+ community. The city has been joked about, lied on, and taken to task for its reputation as one of the centers for non-straight individuals, especially black men. By taking advantage of this fact that Atlanta is a haven for African-American homosexuals, this coward named Taurence Callagain received a conviction ruling based on a rape that he commited in 2015. In order to win the trust of a young woman, he perpetrated the fraud by acting as a gay man. He then lured the woman to his apartment where she expected to put some kush into the air. Callagain possessed ulterior motives. He continued the ruse all the way up until the woman found her way into his bedroom where he savagely raped her.
